ClearMax 5000 is a trivalent chrome (chrome III) version of its proven hexavalent-free zinc finishes with the addition of a licensed “JS 500” sealer from MacDermid, Inc. Bright silver in appearance, ClearMax 5000 does not exhibit any of the yellow tints that are common with hexavalent finishes that incorporate a sealer.
ClearMax 5000 offers extended corrosion protection at a reasonable cost.Neutral salt spray testing indicates performance of 120 hours to initial white corrosion and 500 hours to initial red corrosion (8um/.0003 zinc). All testing is done in accordance with ASTM-B-117.
ClearMax 5000 is approved for Chrysler specification PS8814 and Ford specification WSS-M21P17-B1. Please contact Modern Plating for information on other specifications that can be met with ClearMax 5000.
HC-Black 3 is a high corrosion resistant trivalent black chromate that is applied over zinc plated parts. It is a very cost effective finish for use in corrosive environments where extended protection is required.
HC-Black 3 provides a glossy black finish and is excellent for use with paints, oils and waxes due to its high level of adhesion.
Modern Plating’s research has developed Zinc-PLUS 3 to meet the needs of those customers requiring the high performance of Modern’s popular Zinc-PLUS finish but in a trivalent version. All drive characteristics of our hexavalent Zinc-PLUS finish have been maintained in the new trivalent Zinc-PLUS 3 finishes.
Zinc-PLUS 3 clear will surpass 300 hours to the first sign of white corrosion in neutral salt spray testing and 1,000 hours to the first sign of red corrosion. Zinc-PLUS 3 black will also surpass 300 hours to the first sign of white corrosion in neutral salt spray testing and over 720 hours to the first sign of red corrosion.
Zinc-PLUS 3 meets the demanding specifications of the automotive and other industries that require superior performance. Zinc-PLUS 3 offers a medium to high gloss finish, good elasticity and minimal recess fill. This permits it to be used on a wide variety of part configurations. Zinc-PLUS 3 offers significant cost savings when compared to other finishes offering this level of corrosion resistance. It meets all the adhesion requirements of the ASTM B-571 standard and has passed the climatic/cyclical testing of GM 9540P.
